The Stone Strong abutments can accept steel, timber or other Bridge Beam types. *On Short Spans you can design direct span (longitudinal) concrete slab beams without pre-stressing, practically to about 27' in length. *For Longer Spans you need a different type of superstructure. For the purposes of this presentation we will focus on steel beams or girders with precast transverse slabs.

Beam (structure) Wikipedia

Beam deflections are also minimized for aesthetic reasons. A visibly sagging beam, even if structurally safe, is unsightly and to be avoided. A stiffer beam (high modulus of elasticity and/or one of higher second moment of area) creates less deflection.

Bridge beams for the port of Saldanha Bay Cape Concrete

Cape Concrete's casting yard in Blackheath is equipped with a 40 m long stressing bed that is purpose made for the manufacturing of pre-tensioned concrete beams. A coal-fired steam boiler is used to produce steam for the concrete curing process and to accelerate concrete strength gain. A production rate of 1 beam every second day was achieved during the peak construction

Bridge construction Designing Buildings Wiki

Beam bridges are either simple beam or cantilever structures generally constructed from steel truss or pre-stressed concrete units. The simple beam bridge is horizontally self-supporting and transmits loads vertically through piers or abutments. The cantilever bridge transmits loads through piers central to the beam. Arch bridges. Arch bridges consist of a load-bearing arch in

A Brief History of High Railway Bridges HighestBridges

Railroad Bridge Types. Railroad bridges are usually made of either stone, concrete, steel or timber. In North America, stone and concrete arches were rarely used for very high railroad bridge construction due to the difficulty of having to build tall centerings which are large, temporary timber supports curved in the shape of the stone or concrete arch that will be built upon it.

Prestressed concrete Wikipedia

Prestressed concrete is a form of concrete used in construction. It is substantially "prestressed" during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service. 35 This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in

Steel-Concrete Composite Structure an overview

Steel-concrete composite structures have been used extensively in bridge structures, both highway and railway bridges, due to the benefits of combining the two construction materials, their higher span-to-depth ratio, reduced deflections, and higher stiffness ratios than traditional steel or concrete beam structures (Lin et al., 2016a).For simply supported composite beams, the concrete

NCDOT Prestressed Concrete Channel Beam Bridges

The State Bridge Maintenance Unit adopted two standard, prestressed concrete channel beam designs in 1956. The first was for channels of 20-, 25-, or 30-foot-long spans and 15-ton (H15) truck loads. This was a straightforward channel-beam bridge with the beams stiffened by transverse ties and the adjacent channels also serving as the deck. The second of the designs
